From “Drawings for a Living Architecture” in a monumental volume published for the Bear Run Foundation and the Edgar J. Kaufmann Charitable Foundation by Horizon Press.
By Thomas Shess, Editor, PillartoPost.org--When I managed the editorial department for Ed and Gloria Self’s San Diego Magazine (founded in 1948) it amused me that so often we would have architectural students sitting in our conference room/library pouring over back issues. Amused because what was the magazine staff still regarded current events was now history to others. Nonetheless, it pleased us that enlightened professors would usher students in to see and read about the work of important local architects/critics. Mainly, they were there to study the published postmodern architecture that the late Editor in Chief Ed Self championed over the years, especially those penned by James Britten.
